5.0 out of 5 stars **** - an underrated early-90s gem June 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
After the magnificent peak of "Back In Black", it seemed that AC/DC had spent their muse. Their creative slump through the 80s came to an end, though, as they delivered this superb gem in September 1990.
"The Razors Edge" was a sizable hit, although not as big as it deserved, and it is filled with the kind of memorable, catchy and unapologetically silly rock n' roll that made "Black In Black" such a tremendous album.
From the menacing title song through the melodious (and surprisingly big) hit singles "Thunderstruck", "Are You Ready" and "Moneytalks", to the silly "Mistress For Christmas", this record doesn't have a single weak track. Even the lesser-known album tracks, such as "Shot Of Love", "If You Dare" and "Let's Make It" are more than worth a listen, and rarely has any rock band put together such a great collection of songs...tune for tune, riff for riff, this is better than most hard rock bands' greatest hits-collections.
The title, by the way, is a quote from a 1988 interview with Keith Richards.
Nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best AC/DC albums Dec 15 2003
By SPM
Format:Audio CD
There are three types of AC/DC songs: the killers, the rockers, and the B-sides. The Razors Edge has two killers: Thunderstruck and Fire Your Guns. If a "Best of AC/DC" album is made some day, both of these songs have to be on it. They are as good as anything on Back in Black.
There are seven rockers: Moneytalks, The Razors Edge, Rock Your Heart Out, Are You Ready, Shot of Love, Let's Make It, and If You Dare. Every one of these songs will make you nod your head up and down as you listen. They aren't as potent as the killers, but they're close enough.
The remaining three songs --- Mistress for Christmas, Got You By the Balls, Goodbye and Good Riddance to Bad Luck --- are B-sides. All three are pretty good (there's no bad song on this album), but none of them have a good enough guitar riff to measure up to the rest of the album.
This remastered disc sounds great. The drums and bass are as clear as the guitars, which is a nice change. (On too many rock albums, the bass is pushed way back until you can barely hear it.) The disc comes with a little full-color booklet that describes the circumstances under which the album was written and recorded. Overall, this is a great AC/DC album, far better than I expected. I bought it just to hear Thunderstruck over and over, but I like the whole thing. If you're into AC/DC, you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uh Oh. . .I've Been Thunderstruck! Oct. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the straight-shooting classic that was "Back in Black," AC/DC had a bumpy ride for much of the 1980s. They continued to release solid albums, but their sales began to dip after 1981's "For Those About to Rock We Salute You." But 1990 was the year the Australian boys reclaimed the hard rock throne with their tough album "The Razors Edge" (hold the apostrophe). That record blasted to Number Two and went multiplatinum in a year when folks like MC Hammer dominated the charts. Produced by the late Bruce Fairbairn (who also worked with Bon Jovi, Poison, and Aerosmith), "The Razors Edge" may not be a classic, but it roars with energy and spunk. Like any AC/DC record, this CD revolves around three themes: sex, drugs (with booze), and rock and roll. The hits on this CD are the rousing "Thunderstruck" and the top 40 hit "Moneytalks," but other killer cuts are the funny "Got You By the Balls," "Are You Ready," the ever-festive "Mistress for Christmas," and "Fire Your Guns." Like Robert John "Mutt" Lange, Fairbairn's production is a bit on the polished side, but it doesn't compromise AC/DC's sound. Angus Young's guitar still rocks, and Brian Johnson's bark continues to roar in all its shrill glory. I'm not a metalhead by any means, but I know a good album when I hear one. "The Razors Edge" is just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock your heart out Sept. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
Earlier this year I rediscovered AC/DC with their immortal classic "Back in Black". I am not a big metalhead that I once was just a decade ago back in high school. I really don't care for today's brand of hard rock. A lot of it I find contrived and pure drivel. Most hard rock bands won't last long as AC/DC has, nor will they have a lasting impact that the legendary Aussie band has over rock 'n roll music. I found a used copy of the remastered "Razor's Edge" today. I loved songs like "Thunderstruck", "Moneytalks" and "Are You Ready" back in high school and I still do to this day, so I had to buy this album. "Razor's Edge" may not be "Highway to Hell" (another AC/DC album I need to get) or "Back in Black" but it sure as heck a fun album to listen to. I almost forgot how much I loved "Are You Ready" with its sing along chorus from rhythmn guitarist Malcom Young and bassist Cliff Williams. An absolutely infectious hard rock song that just sticks into the listener's head permenantly. "Thunderstruck" is without a doubt one of the best songs that showcases Angus Young's undeniable guitar talents and a reminder to young and upcoming guitarists why he is still one of the best hard rock guitarists around. Like "Are You Ready", "MoneyTalks" is incredibly catchy with its sing-along chorus. I love that song to pieces. That song ranks right up there with "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Highway to Hell" as one of the overall best AC/DC tracks around. AC/DC gets a lot of flack for sounding the same on each record but I see the band staying true to their bluesy hard rock sound and consistently putting out great rock and roll albums. So what if each album sounds alike? Read more ›
